Usually it’s Formula One superstars like IWC’s Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg hitting the track at Sepang International Circuit. However, with the Formula 1 race off till next season (after an amazing win by Sebastian Vettel), Mercedes-Benz hosted a unique event at Malaysia’s famous racetrack.
The luxury automaker offered F1 fans the chance to get behind the wheel and experience the track for themselves with the Mercedes-Benz Driving Experience 2013. The event is also an opportunity to master the skills of safer and better driving. With a cost of RM 4,500 (approximately US$1,400) the event included a theory presentation and two exercises behind the wheel on the track, completed by a certificate presentation at the end of the day.
One of the participants, Johann Koch, commented, “Great experience and I surely recommend this “Driving Experience” to anyone who wants to grasp the feel of driving on such a challenging circuit.”
